Undefeated Beşiktaş advance to round of 16 in Champions League, beating Leipzig 2-1

Their 5-2 win in the final group game, coupled with RB Leipzig's defeat by Besiktas, was enough to see them through. The Italian club's hopes of snatching second place in Group F, however, were hit as Feyenoord fought back to equalise through Nicolai Jorgensen before claiming the dramatic victor and their first points in this year's group stage.

If they pull it off, the Germans will reach the last 16 in their first Champions League campaign.

But how have some of the potential Premier League players of the future performed in Europe? But by halftime, with Porto now leading 3-0, Leipzig's fate was sealed and they were playing for pride.

PORTO were desperate to secure a victory to ensure their path into the last 16 of the Champions League.

Cameroon star Vincent Aboubakar double sees Porto through to knock-out stages

By that stage both teams had been reduced to 10 men, because Porto's Felipe and Monaco's Rachid Ghezzal were sent off after a clash between the two.

"We are eager to do better than in the first leg, we do not like to lose twice against the same opponent", said Hasenhuettl. Sporting were unable to counter the favouritism of Barcelona, losing to two second-half goals in Spain, but overall Jorge Jesus's side gave a good account of themselves in a group containing the Spanish giants and Juventus - two teams with legitimate ambitions of winning the tournament - and Olympiakos.

The German side, who had to achieve a better result than Porto to finish second behind Group G winners Besiktas, were beaten by a half-volleyed 90th minute strike from Brazil Under-23 global Talisca.

Aboubakar who has scored 15 goals this season will be looking to help Porto with another positive result when they face Vitória Setúbal in Sunday's Portuguese top-flight encounter.
